who work under pressure in horrendous con-
ditions and the town plow crews who open the
roads for them. It doesn't take 10 or 11 hours
to prove to modern man how dependent we all
are on the electric current that flows so un-
noticed through the maze of wire that lines
our roads and streets. Stop that flow in sum-
mer and serious inconvenience is experi-
enced. Stop that flow in winter and each
hour becomes an ever more serious emer-
gency o We simply cannot maintain a dwell-
ing very long without heat and most of us
are completely dependent on central heat.
Nothing quite proves the inadequacy of
such auxiliary systems as an open fireplace
in space such as most homes heat without
concern o When the power stops, we be-
come living legends of the "good old days"
wishing for the one room log cabin of that
period. In a major storm, we huddle to-
gether in a void without light, without all
the toys upon which we have become so
dependent and with a diminishing heat
which reminds us constantly that water
freezes at 32 degrees Fo The hours drago

Activity is limited to feeding what fire
we can muster o Food becomes a major
triumph . The first storm of this winter
produced food for thought on how to con-
serve and generate non-electric heat. It
will provide tall tales for a week to come
for many-c For one and all it proves the
dependence we have on the easy flow of
electrons, unseen, unnoticed and such a
marvel that almost nothing in our time
will work when they stop except, of course,
the homeowner watching a falling thermom-
As the electrons flow once more we tip

BUS SERVICE EXPLORED
Selectmen are considering joining the South-
eastern Regional Transit Authority in order
to continue to provide the limited bus ser-
vice at some possible lower cost than the
$5000 in subsidy which the town paid in
1980 for the 3 round trips per dayo The
subsidy has steadily risen to the point where
Selectmen were considering discontinuing
the subsidy to save the town money o A
meeting called a week previous to deter-
mine if anyone used the service regularly
was attended by less than 10 people but
a petition was presented to Selectmen
signed by 54 persons requesting continu-
ation of the service .
Executive Secretary Carol Adams has
made inquiries and explained to Select-
men that it may be less expensive to join
SRTA than to continue the subsidy o Se-
lectmen will seek a specific figure before

TRU TEST COLOR CONSULTANT
Why does the paint, that I chose so carefully
to match my carpet sample, look dark and heavy
now that it's painted on the wall?
Yours is a case of "over matching." Often the
best answer is not an exact match. Rather try
to choose a color that, when painted on the wall,
seems to match the carpet. To find this color, hold
your carpet sample directly under the light in the
Tru-lbst Custom Color Selector. Then view your
paint sample in the wall position (at right angles
to the carpet). You will see that it takes a color
several shades lighter than the carpet to match
it in this position.
Any color will appear lighter or darker accord-
ing to how much or how little Hght it reflects.
Your floor reflects more light than any other plane
in the room. Walls reflect much less light (the
ceiling least of all). So to make your wall color
seem to match your floor choose a light color.

TO HELP HANDICAPPED CONSUMERS

citizens who park in spaces reserved for

Dr, Schell urges concerned citizens to
contact her office and request a free supply
of parking "tickets" — which carry the fol-
lowing reminder to offending motorists:

Dro Schell stated: "Parking spaces reserved
for handicapped persons should not be used
by able-bodied drivers o When you thought-
lessly park in a handicapped space or across
a curb cut, you may be depriving handicapped
consumers of their right to shop or their
right of access. "

of handicapped parking "tickets" by writing:
